The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), says it has launched a #COVID19NigeriaStories blog to document Nigeria’s response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The Director General of the centre, Chikwe Ihekweazu, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday in Abuja.

He advised Nigerians to log on to the website to read about the people behind the response.

Ihekweazu added that as Nigeria continued to respond to the novel Coronavirus pandemic, it was important to document the process and inform the public.

He said “we cannot handle future public health emergencies without applying lessons learnt from the current pandemic.

“This is why documenting #COVID19NigeriaStories is important.”

According to him, many sectors have worked with great coordination to develop and implement Nigeria’s COVID-19 response.

NAN reports that the NCDC boss, who explained that “the #COVID-19NigeriaStories explores different state level responses to COVID-19”, added that “it is interesting to learn how different states are responding toward tackling the pandemic.”
